privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going

on tuesday september 4 with michelle obama, the first lady of the united states. on the fifth, we have president bill clinton and so many others speaking here. our great keynote speaker, the mayor of san antonio, and so many others, who will be taking to the stage to talk about the vision and the message that the president and his campaign has for the next four years. the stage and screen is behind me will allow them to deliver that message in a visually engaging way, both to the thousands of people here in the arena and to the millions who will be watching at home or online. today is really exciting for me. i started working on convention planning almost three years ago, believe it or not. and moved here, as i said, last june to oversee this process. it is hard for me to thank so many people who have worked tirelessly on this. i would like to thank first and foremost our staff, the staff of the democratic national convention committee, and our partners at the host committee here in charlotte for the incredibly hard work they did to make today and to make next week possible. it really
of doubt and decline. we can elect mitt romney the president of the united states and get america back on track. >> shepard: democrats had planned a similar tactic to send vice president bide ton florida during the convention in florida. the president called off that visit because hurricane isaac was hitting. congressman ryan is leading the charge against the president it would appear, carl? >> that's right, shep. republicans are making good their pledge to make this the most aggressive counter argument that's ever happened at a convention. they do site he had planned to be in florida at the republic national convention though they were interrupted by isaac. marco rubio, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, governor of oklahoma as well. ryan gave what was more the most part a standard stump speech signal the question for the week for are you better off now as you were four years ago reagan made famous. here is paul ryan's 2012 rendition. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say you are better off today than you
, but the president of the united states is not quite yet. this is urbandale, iowa. this is a big rally and this will be the president's seventh stop in iowa leading up to presidential election this november. all of this as he kicks off the warm-up act before the dnc gets under way this week in charlotte. we'll take you back to urbandale, iowa, as soon as the president arrives. >>> all right. a check of some of the news happening right now overseas. in central afghanistan two suicide bombers have targeted an afghan military base. the attacks killed 13 people, among the dead, a child, two women and four policemen. the taliban has claimed responsibility. >>> in south africa, protests are breaking out over the arrest of 270 platinum mine workers charged with the murder of 34 of their colleagues, but those workers were actually shot by police. south africa's justice minister is now demanding answers. >> after 50 years, the german inventor of the drug thalidomide has apologized to its victims. the drug taken by pregnant women caused babies to be born with deformed limbs. the head of a surviv
for the united states for the rest of the year this weekend. >> tom, how much effect did the storm have on these prices and where are they going up the most? >> chip, we always spend the summer with about 200 barrels of gasoline inventory, which is to say we're always on just in time inventory. when you get anything that ripples through the system, a storm that interrupts production for a period of time, it can have a lasting impact, particularly in august. so it probably added about 5 to 15, maybe 20 cents a ga the irony is the prices went up most in places distance from the storm like chicago and detroit. that had little to do with the hurricane but a lot to do the hardware up that way, which has been finicky all summer long. >> what do you think in terms of seeing some relief? >> oh, i think you'll see relief. i don't know if ten days prices will be lower. but i think 100 days from now prices will be considerably lower. we bombed out at $3.25 the end of the year. i think there's a good chance we'll get to that. these are really, really big profits for refiners right now. they tend to
the president of the united states address the people of america in his acceptance speech, and i read that this morning, and you haven't perhaps gotten a chance to do that, but if you did, perhaps like me, you found it extraordinarily disappointing. surprisingly disappointing, because his speech four years ago he laid out a whole series of lofty goals, and unfortunately, he was unable to meet them. as a matter of fact, i can think of very few of the promises that he made four years ago that he has kept. he said he'd raise incomes for people, and in fact, they have gone down by $5,000 a family. he said he'd create more new businesses, and people who wanted to start a business would be encourage d to do so, be but in fact, we are at a 30-year low in new business start-ups. he would get the people back the work. you remember with his stimulus plan, the stimulus said that if we let him borrow $787 billion, he would hold unemployment below 8%, but it has been 43 straight months above 8%, and today, 23 million americans stop looking for work or out of work or underemployed. it is a national
, it is at the united states and the so-called t-5 plus 1, a group of counselries meeting with negotiation with iran over the last several years. you know, i think president obama has been clear what his red line is. his is iran will not acquire a nuclear weapon. if they make a move in that direction, the u.s. will use whatever options necessary. israel has a different red line. they try to nudge the negotiators and the other international parties. >> shannon: you mentioned the president and his red line. he has taken criticism this week from the g.o.p. official nominee, mitt romney. let's tick a listen at what he had to say this week. >> every american was relieved the day president obama gave the order and seal team 6 took out bin laden. on another front, every american is less secure today because he has failed to slow iran's nuclear threat. >> doctor, he did praise him for taking out bin laden but said that the president has failed when it comes to this particular issue of the nuclear threat. we are also getting news that iran has signed a deal with north korea to share laboratories and technolo
lady of the united states. she's here at the time warner cable arena. she's now at the podium the right there. you can see she's getting instructions, trying to begin to get a little feel for that stage up there. the teleprompter that will eventually be there. she's going to deliver a major address here, obviously, in charlotte at the democratic national convention tomorrow night. that's what the first lady will be doing. she's been here now, i'm guessing for at least 45 minutes to an hour. she was up in the sky boxes walking around, doing some television interviews, and just beginning to get a flavor for what's going on. this will be a very important address. she's very popular out there. has high, high approval and favorability numbers. there's no doubt about that. and she's going to be under enormous pressure to deliver that big speech tomorrow night. we're here in "the situation room" watching everything that's going on. gloria borger is here. brianna keilar is here. as we see the first lady, this is normal. everybody does this. all the big speakers, at some point, they come in here
of the united states, you can get in touch with us via social media, twitter, and the address there # csspan wa. the facebook.com/c-span or journal@c-span.org. this is an editorial, a piece in "the washington post" with the headline -- "after the party is over." he's talking about what he saw in the republican convention. he says conventions can be memorable events. they're known to energize the party faithful. they can convert never heard-of, barack obama into celebrities. modern day political conventions produce a steady stream of informercial, rather, during primetime all without paying for coverage. conventions have their pitfalls. these affairs have, on occasion, slipped off message, producing sometimes unanticipated adverse events. the violent clashes between police and protesters at the 1968 democratic convention nearly overshadowed the political rough housing on the convention floor. word of this week's incident, rather, in tampa in which two republican guests reportedly threw peanuts at a black cnn camerawoman saying, quote, this is how we feed animals is spreading like wild fire among
the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> cnn foreign affairs reporter elise labott is with us. what can we expect from ahmadinejad today? will he tone it down or go out as fiery as he always does? >> i think he's going to double down, up the ante, and hear more of the same. previous years he's talked about american officials being responsible for 9/11, talking about that the holocaust never exists. i think he's very sidelined at home. not very strong right now. i think he'd like to use the world stage as a bullying pulpit, if you will, and then when he talks about this new world order, it has a lot of resonance in some of the countries that do feel like the united states and the western countries, the permanent members of the security council, call all the shots. so while he says a lot of things that are, rheric that's very fiery, at the same time, he does have an audience, he's not just speaking for himself. >> people have been asking to tone it down, ban ki-moon -- >> ban ki-moon, u.n. secretary-general said, listen, your last time, w
, the president of the united states will accept his party's presidential nomination at the conclusion of the dnc. >> choosing charlotte to host our convention was no accident. north carolina is a critical battle ground state in the election. >> reporter: the dnc chairman says this convention is anything but conventional. >> we're doing things differently than any convention you've ever seen. we're throwing the doors open and inviting thousands of americans to be part of this convention in many different ways. >> reporter: the dnc is known for its firsts. in 1832, the first dnc was held in a baltimore saloon. a hundred years later, franklin delano roosevelt was the first major party candidate to accept the nomination in person. in 1940, fdr's wife eleanor was the first woman to address a national political convention. in 1984, geraldine ferraro was the first woman placed on the national ticket by a major party. in 2000, the first jewish candidate. and this year, the first hispanic to deliver the keynote address at the dnc. preparations for the four-day convention have been under way for months. t
. >> it is tragic. >> the drug was widely distributed but not ever approved in the united states. an extraordinary thing, the fda looked at it, studied it and one particular scientist, a courageous woman said no, we can't do this they put enormous pressure her. john kennedy gave her a medal because that lady's determination kept thalidomide from being approved in the united states and it was widely used in clinical trials and they gave it to their patients and those women, their children are still trying to get reimbursed. >> incredible. in this day and age no one is prescribing it, louie. we hope no one is prescribing thalidomide to mothers who are mothers to-be and are feeling nauseous. it is being used but to treat other things. >> the fda didn't approve it in 1961 and they did approve it for leprosy and bone marrow cancer and it is a successful drug and is being used but it cannot escape the shadow of that horror of the early '60s. it's a lesson to us all about how careful we all have to be. >> john mann, appreciate that. >>> a former store manager for the national clothing chain wet seal says
will man, in you say one member of congress is equal to the president of the united states --. >>guest: he did not vote for those? >> he put out a budget and passion add budget that achieves balance and this president has not gotten one vote for a budget. >> that is not true. >>shepard: to make budget we have to get commercials in. i don't like them but we love our sponsors the guys, have a good time and enjoy yourselves. >>shepard: when the camera is not on they seem to like each other. well be right back the bottom of the hour and the top of the news coming up from the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. >>shepard: i am shepard smith. this is "studio b" at the bottom of the hour in charlotte, north carolina. crews are tearing down the stage at the football stadium. organizers say the threat of severe wet tomorrow forced them to move the move indoors. he will be here, inside this building on the main convention stage. it has the protection of a roof but about 50,000 fewer seats than the stadium. that means some folk whose had tickets to see the speech need to make
with him. >> i accept your nominates for president of the united states -- nomination for president of the united states. >> reporter: friday before leaving florida romney greeted supporters at a sendoff rally. >> the convtion was a magnificent and wonderful opportunity for us to share our message with the american people thanks in large measure to the folks here in florida and now we really do need you to get out there and get your friends to vote. >> rorter: the president meanwhile headed to el paso, texas, to speak to troops in what was billed as a noncampaign event to highlight the second anniversary of his decision to end u.s. combat in iraq. >> at the time i know some folks didn't believe me. they were skeptical. some thought the end of combat was just war games and semantics, but i meant what i said. >> reporter: but the vice presidential candidates were also in action. in richmond republican candidate paul ryan appeared with house gop leader eric cantor of virginia. >> i don't want to bore you by saying the same thing over again, but it bears repeating. if we stay on the
the world... ...with the best math scores. ...the united states would be on that list. in 25th place. let's raise academic standards across the nation. let's get back to the head of the class. let's solve this. you walk into a convtional mattress store, it's really not about you. they say, "well, if you wanted a firm bed you can lie on one of those." we provide the exact individualization that your body needs. welcome to the sleep number store's biggest sale of the year. not just ordinary beds on sale, but the bed that can change your life on sale. the sleep number bed. never tried this before. this is your body there. you can see a little more pressure in the hips. take it up one notch. oh gosh, yes. when you're playing around with that remote, you get that moment where you go, "oh yeah" oh, yeah! ... and it's perfect. right now, every sleep number bed is on sale. queen mattresses now start at just $599. and for one week only, save an incredible 50% on our silver limited edition bed-but only through labor day and only while supplies last. once you experience it, there's no going back. wo
. the president spoke as president of the united states that comes with a platform and a responsibility. he put it on the line. eight years ago when he addressed the convention he was a cand date and now a president of the united states and that comes with responsibility and experience of foreign policy and sensitive diplomacy measures and i believe he was correct to make that difference between him and mitt romney . >> we have a politician that will do anything by any means necessary to gain votes. anything that mitt romney didn't talk about, president obama was going to. >> gretchen: so mitt romney faced criticism because he didn't talk about the military in his speech. >> first nominee to not talk about the armed conflicts or thank the truth. >> gretchen: but was this the right thing for the president to do. do people remember when he had no foreign policy. >> four years ago when he was on the road, he made a foreign trip and the crowds were amazing and it was a successful foreign trip. mitt romney goes and he does have a bunch of gaffes in the olympics and had made mistakes in what he said.
was the biggest terrorist incident before 9/11 that the united states history had. a man who had been on my secret service detail had transferred there because he thought it would be a great place to raise his children. he was killed that day. along with other people. i had, like every politician, on occasion, gotten upset. and referred to government bureaucrats. i promised myself i would never use those two words together for the rest of my life. i would treat those people who serve our country with respect whether they are in uniform, law enforcement, fire fighters, and the other thing. [applause] that is it. if you are working for the future, i think the president's plan is better. i know the economic plan is better. and i know it will not amount to a hill of beans if you do not register and vote and get your friends to. so do it. god bless you all. [cheers and applause] ♪ >> have you visited the c-span campaign 2012 website? it can watch events from the campaign trail. you can also read what the candidates are saying on major issues like the economy, the deficit, national security, and immig
from now. >> i accept your nomination for president of the united states. and on every issue, the choice you face won't just be between two candidates or two parties. it will be a choice between two different paths for america. ours is a fight to restore the values that built the largest middle class and the strongest economy the world has ever known. now, our friends down in tampa at the republican convention, were more than happy to talk about everything they think is wrong with america. but they didn't have much to say how they'd make it right. they want your vote, but they don't want you to know their plan. and that's because all they had to offer is the same prescriptions they've had for the last 30 years. have a surplus? try a tax cut. deficit too high? try another. feel a cold coming on? take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning. i'm asking you to rally. around a set of goals for your country, goals in manufacturing, energy, education, national security, and the deficit. real achievable plans that will lead to new jobs. more opportunity.
of the united states. it is a job that brings with it a lot of speaking responsibilities and oh, my god, could you see that tonight. first lady tonight, a long, personal, emotionally, frankly excellent speech from michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have
, and, more outreach and bringing his message to the people of the united states. what did you think about it? about that story? i found it very interesting. >> well, i thought it was interesting, and i think some of it, certainly, is true. he'd be silly not to be worried, according to the polls, it is all within the margin of error, this election with just over nine weeks left is absolutely up for grabs. he'd be naive and he's far from that, not to be worried but i also think there is a certain amount of spin in that article and obviously it helps, with their voters. if they say, the big guy is worried and the big guy wants to campaign harder and wants even longer days, then that is saying to his supporters, you have to get out there and work even harder for this guy, because this is a real fight and as far as the argument about, well, he'll be more of a compromiser in a second term, again, he's got to say things will be better than they were, obviously, there has been total gridlock for the last two years and i don't see any signs of it and i suppose if there were a sweeping electi

's relationship it the united states. ambassador john bolton, former u.n. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor joins us now. ambassador, why is this significant? >> i think it shows the influence iran has over the maliki government in iraq and is using iraqi airspace, if these reports are correct, to resupply syria. this is a critical fight in syria for iran. it goes to its arc of hegemony across the region, hezbollah, terrorist group in lebanon, to me it is not surprising that iraq is allowing these flights. not surprising iran would try to use the overflights is supply syria. jenna: why should iraq listen to us? >> i think it is very unlikely iraq will listen to us. i think the administration's decision to pull out combat troops simply allowed iran to increase its influence over the maliki government. that is one of the reasons i'm worried about stability in iraq itself. it was one of the consequences entirely predictable when this withdrawal went forward. jenna: but iran has been involved in iraq and iraqi politics now for a while, ambassador, right? we've seen this before. iran
it is obvious but it is an input of everything we produce in the united states. food prices rise and health care prices rise and transportation costs rise and that's what we are seeing right now. the idea that we are not having inflation in the economy. they have to get out to the store and start buying things. middle class families, half of the budget goes for health care and food and energy and those are all rising in costings. >> the energy costs right now and particularly gasoline. you expect to see a downward turn in the next couple of months. how critical is that going to be? >> it is interesting if you look back in 1980. one of the things jimmie carter lost that election. they saw the gas price food and that contributed to reagan's victory. it couldn't happen at a worst time. i think the prices are going to fall but back to where they were in july. 3.50 or 3.75 but that is expensive to people and twice as expensive as gasoline costs back in barack obama was elected in 2008. and news of the national debt surging this week as the democrats are set to holding the con. >> i don't think the de
